art history for kids

Meet The Artist: An Experiential Art History Class


In this experiential art history class, your child will learn about famous artists, their style and story.  Students will then take their learning and get creative with their own artwork, inspired by the artist of the lesson. Whether it be painting to music or with eyes closed, students will step into the shoes of each artist as they explore different creative worlds throughout the course of this interactive class.

The students will be making “process art”, and will therefore learn to focus on the process of art making, rather than the end product.  This kind of art making helps kids release expectations and encourages a judgement free creative zone.

Students will also learn how to utilize art making along with breathing techniques as tools to help teach the children the art of self-regulation, relaxation and meditation.
